Rreboot your computer with the system Restore CD in it. it will ask you if you want to boot to CD. do so and you will begin the restore process.

The problem is that the disk is bootable, but has no autostart for use in Windows. it was meant to be used without windows, as they asume if you are using it windows is most likely broken.

No restore cd


I have an Acer 3680 series laptop and it originally came with Windows Vista Basic (now I have Windows 7 32 bit on it).

But, anyway, on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 the restore is done by going to the help menus and typing in 'restore' or 'recover' whichever route you want to go.

Data is stored on the computer's hard drive that can take the computer all the way back to the day it was new, or to a freshly installed state of the operating system.

I hope this helps.

Unable to recover system


see if your system restore is in my computer c:\ drive
should be there it will probably say acer on the folder

restart while in restart press F7 then when options appear select boot with cd or cd/dvd
then enter this will start the system with the cd
if it does'nt start the win setup then restart might need to try a couple times
if setup still does'nt start then make sure the cd is the right recovery disk

I want to purchase a dvd burner for my aspire 3680


It is unclear to me whether your system will support a DVD burner. This is something that is influenced by the BIOS of a PC.

I found two places where your model is discussed, the first would seem to imply that the 3680 will support it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t264099-acer_aspire_3680_could_not_load_dvd

The 2nd , from: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-3680-2682-Aspire/dp/B000UHXK8C

upgradeable to 2 GB DVD-Combo optical drive CD and DVD-ROM compatibility and lets you burn up to 700 MB of data on CD-R/RWs for easy backups

doesn’t seem to indicate that it can be added.

Look at your manual to see if your machine has a flash BIOS that can be upgraded. If so, it would be wise to go to the Acer website and download the latest BIOS version before you plan on adding a DVD burner.

Cant go back to created restore point


your pc probably automatically creates restore points and there is a limit on the space they can take so it automatically starts to remove the old ones.

to my experience system restore in xp was a total peace of ****
takeing up extra space and when used caused more problems than it fixed.

In my honest opinion system restore shouldnt be used.
